Thanks so much for your review. I'm sorry about the misunderstanding regarding ensuite bathrooms but our description does mention that there are shared bathrooms on each floor and every room description accurately says that they are shared. If you could give us a call and explain where you saw this incorrect information I can set about correcting it so that this confusion does not happen again.
